Hello Gatsby

Hello Gatsby

The first post on this site was written on July 27th, 2004. Wow, nearly 14 years ago. I believe it was written on  Scott Watermasysk’s .Text platform, at least that is the first blogging platform I remember running for real. I eventually followed…

Customizing Graffiti Chalk GetAppSetting

Continued Graffiti goodness. Here is another Graffiti customization - the GetAppSetting Chalk extension. I recently put this one together so I haven’t grown to love it as much as the RedirectIfSinglePost extension, but it is very handy to have…

Customizing Graffiti Chalk RedirectIfSinglePost

In my last post I promised a wealth of Graffiti posts would soon be flowing from my finger tips. Here is my first and probably my favorite Graffiti customization - the RedirectIfSinglePost Chalk extension. I have used this on every Graffiti site I’ve…

Review, CodeMash, and Preview - More Graffiti
